House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have again risen up to cause dismay within the United States.
The two Democrats prove they are determined not only to refuse to cooperate but to actively thwart Trump’s attempts to get the wall built.
After President Trump signified that he would request more than $8 billion for border funding in the 2020 budget, Pelosi and Schumer have stated they are willing to begin another government shutdown.
“President Trump hurt millions of Americans and caused widespread chaos when he recklessly shut down the government to try to get his expensive and ineffective wall, which he promised would be paid for by Mexico,” the ranking Democrats began.
“Congress refused to fund his wall and he was forced to admit defeat and reopen the government. The same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again,” the leaders continued. “We hope he learned his lesson.”
It appears that the Democrats are the ones who have forgotten the damage and public outcry over the initial shutdown. If anyone needs to study past lessons, it’s them.
